A letter from the university president

Dear USF Community:

The USF family extends our sympathy and prayers to the families and all who are affected by the terrible events in New York and Washington D.C. today. We grieve with them, and for our nation.

I want to assure you that the safety of our university community is the primary concern of this administration. We will continue to exercise an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff. We will maintain a safe campus as we resume our normal operations today.

The events of Sept. 11, 2001, will continue to lay heavy on our hearts. Assistance will be available throughout the day and evening for our faculty, staff and students who need it. USF counseling and Victims Advocacy representatives will be set up in Room 108 in the Marshall Center or may be reached at (813) 974-5967.

We will continue to monitor these events as they are presented to the public. Please visit or call (800) 992-4231 for updated information.

I encourage the entire USF family to come together in spirit, prayer and thoughts as we all move forward.


Judy Genshaft,
USF president
